Description Telesto 2017-09-28 20:32:10 UTC
The different palette files (soc, sog, sob) are read:
* every time when opening the page dialog 
* and the file read count has doubled 
since commit d5016b013672056f89f908b6cde38183fad145bb (standard.soc was accessed only 8 times before the commit and after 16 times after).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Launch Process Monitor with filter set to Path Contains \standard.soc
3. Start the capture
4. Open Format -> Page menu
5. Stop the capture

Actual Results:  
The different palette files (soc, sog, sob) are read
* each time when opening the page dialog.
* the read count has doubled to 16x

Expected Results:
* Should happen only the first time (as before) 
* and probably only 8 times

Reproducible: Always

Comment 1 Aron Budea 2017-09-29 01:01:50 UTC
I can confirm with LO, and also checked the bibisect result commit. The number of standard.soc accesses also increased between the two, I assume because of bug 112532.

Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2017-12-17 15:35:45 UTC
Michael: just for curiosity what are criteria for lo:badstatics? Is there some doc (even just some lines)?
In the case of this bugtracker, what may be done here? (put something else static, a singleton, other?)

BTW, digging on the stack of callers, I noticed that XPropertyList::CreatePropertyList is declared static (see https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/include/svx/xtable.hxx#228) but implemented not static, (see https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/svx/source/xoutdev/xtable.cxx#331), is it ok?
Comment 4 Aron Budea 2017-12-25 06:44:03 UTC
Found this note:
"wrote a "badstatics" clang plugin to find problematic global variables referencing VCL objects that may cause crashes on shutdown and fixed a bunch of those"

I still don't understand, though.

(In reply to Julien Nabet from comment #3)

Seems to be fine, the static keyword is only required at declaration.
Comment 5 Aron Budea 2018-01-08 14:42:01 UTC
Let me add Michael's comments from IRC here:
<mst_> bearon: XColorList derives from XPropertyList which has std::vector< std::unique_ptr<XPropertyEntry> > and XPropertyEntry has "Bitmap   maUiBitmap;"
<mst_>: bearon: btw badstatics is currently far too lenient, it should really flag anything with a user-defined dtor, but ENOTIME

Maybe the solution would be to use a different structure for color lists?

the practical impact of this for real users is in doubt, likely there are a lot of more important problems...
